Queens of The Stone Age – “I Appear Missing” Animated Video Unveiled

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9OfBcjyxKY[/youtube]

Following the cryptic surfacing of the likeclockwork.tv and its hazy semi-clues and last night’s Adult Swim ad, Queens Of The Stone Age have unveiled a trailer scored by three minutes of the never-before-heard “I Appear Missing,” which appears in its entirety on the band’s upcoming ‘… Like Clockwork’, out June 4 on Matador Records.

Showcasing disturbingly beautiful (or beautifully disturbing?) images from the boundless imagination of … Like Clockwork visual visionary, enigmatic UK artist Boneface (brought to life by animator Liam Brazier), “I Appear Missing” is a hypnotic journey into a nightmare-scape that adds illustrative dimension to another audio glimpse of the coming storm that is … Like Clockwork. Keep Your Eyes peeled on likeclockwork.tv to see what happens next…

Described by Queens principal Joshua Homme as “an audio documentary of a manic year,” … Like Clockwork is the band’s first full length collection of all new material since 2007’s Era Vulgaris, as well as its debut release on new label partner Matador. The record can be pre-ordered on CD and vinyl now from and from iTunes . All pre-orders will immediately receive “My God Is The Sun,” which has been generating some early heat at:

“(FOUR STARS) the band’s most gloriously motorik chug since those early days… takes off like a trip to the Mushroom Planet as Homme croons about desert roads to nowhere and praises the sun like he never gets tired of staring at it… Breathe deep”–ROLLING STONE

“an appropriately gnarly 4/4 monster, recalling their hardest hitting early material. As Homme gazes in awe at the sun’s omnipresent embrace, rock die-hards have ample time to hail the Queens’ revival”
–BILLBOARD

… Like Clockwork was produced by Joshua Homme and QOTSA, recorded by Mark Rankinwith additional engineering by Justin Smith, at Josh’s studio, Pink Duck, in Burbank, California.

Queens of the Stone Age are: Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita and Michael Shuman. Jon Theodore plays drums live (and on the new record’s title track). See below for tour dates and check back at the following for updates:
